Shit. That's messed up.
That's true but sometimes the good is just a farce. They don't always have good intentions. I'm speaking from experience.
I suppose so but if a person is healthy, their parents fed them, wiped their butts as a baby, housed them, dressed them, etc.
That's compulsory for a kid. That's what a parent is supposed to do no matter what because the kid is literally unable to do that on their own. That's irrelevant to what I'm talking about
My parents don't take care of their babies at all. I think people should look for the good in others and be grateful for what is good in life. I can pick apart anyone and call them toxic. Most of the people on here are toxic... it's a matter of perspective.
I'm grateful for having been taken care of when I was younger but my parents didn't bring me up. I did that on my own. You're right, most people on here might be real toxic but that's not what I'm talking about either. I'm sorry that your parents didn't take care of their babies like they should have. Being given everything but love and things that money can't buy will definitely raise a kid differently. What I'm trying to say is that even if we do look for the good in others or if we're grateful for everything that's good in life as you've said it still doesn't erase the fact that there are toxic parents out there. Being grateful and looking for the good won't stop that from happening.
Okay, my parents DID take care of me, that's what I am saying. I am grateful that they did, I have respect for my parents even if they were 'toxic' . How do you define 'toxic' anyway?
Toxic as in narcissistic, abusive, destructive, sadistic, all that kind of stuff. Are they still toxic?
Diagnosed or your opinion?
I'm not diagnosing anyone. You asked me how I define toxic so that's what I'm telling you. I've been reading up on it as well so I know enough to know what's toxic and what's not. And I asked if your parents are still toxic.
And first you said that your parents didn't take care of their babies and then you said they did so which one is it?
Read back... I never said my parents didn't take care of me. Some parents don't so I am grateful to mine for providing for me when I was a child. You're allowed to hate your parents, I'm just stating my point of view on the situation which hopefully you recognize I am entitled to have even if it's different than yours.
I did read back which is why I said that you said that your parents didn't take care of their babies. The fourth comment which is yours. The first word that says "my" which means yours. I didn't say they didn't take care of you. I simply stated what you said in your comment. I respect your opinion as well and I'm well aware that we're all entitled to our opinions too. I don't hate my parents, I could never hate them. I just have one toxic parent who I still don't hate by the way but thank you for sharing your opinion 🙂.
Oh my bad...Sorry! I was looking at my previous comment before that... the other should've been many***** parents. I see the confusion now :) Yeah, my parents took care of me well physically. I went through a long period of hating them for failing me in some areas. I know no one is perfect though so I forgive them now.
That's great! I'm glad you've forgiven them :)
Thank you. It was a journey for sure.
In 2014, i’d spend most of my college refunds on her. She started taking advantage after a while and i cut it out with motivation from my ex in 2018. She couldnt stand it and then she tried to ruin our relationship.
Yeah that's pretty toxic. Is she better now?
She still tries but i shut her ungrateful ass down a lot. I already give a quarter of my check to help with bills. she's not getting more than that
It's good that you put your foot down. She should know her limits
Yea but she still takes emotional advantage when she doesn't get her way. Its sad when you feel bullied sometimes like HS all over again
I have a feeling she could be a narcissist. My mum is too and from what you've told me she shows the same symptoms. It's better to distance yourself from people like this especially when they're your family.
Yea she's def a narcissist. Thats why when i move i won't come back much
Good for you. I hope she leaves you alone. It'll take some time for me to move out but when I do I'll have minimal contact with my mum too.
I was almost out until the pandemic
The pandemic ruined so many things 🤦🏽♀️
